Locked in an eternal struggle of good VS evil, the Batman almost needs the Joker to validate the vigilante’s existence. No matter how many years past, the Dark Knight is never free from the grinning malignancy that is the Joker. Now you can own a massive statue of the two DC Comics legends from Sideshow Collectibles and Prime 1 Studio.
We’re focusing on the Deluxe Bonus Version of the Batman VS The Joker statue because it comes with three different heads for the green-haired fiend. Two of them are pretty standard fare as far as the Joker goes, but the one that’s exclusive for this $2,770 statue is pretty horrifying. I think it’s the tiny irises that do it.
Sideshow CollectiblesLook at that thing! When can we finally get a Joker on the big screen that looks like the embodiment of violent insanity?
Sideshow is currently taking pre-orders for the statue, and it is limited to only 500 pieces. This 33″ tall by 43″ side diorama is set to ship sometime between February and July of next year.
Our talented and dedicated artists have devoted their time and efforts to create this legendary match-up. Batman’s iconic look has been recreated and no detail of his costume has been left to chance. His perfect physique has been rendered with anatomical precision. His cowl, cape, gloves, and boots have been imbued with a leather-like texture. His eyes and facial expression exhibit a deep, but focused rage. His scalloped cape billows with the rushing wind as damage has been strategically added to elicit a battle-worn look. His fabled suit is completed by his finned gloves and famed utility belt.
Here is what you’ll get with the Deluxe statue:
- Chemical Factory-themed base
- Two (2) Swappable Heads for Batman
- Two (2) Swappable Heads for The Joker
- One (1) Swappable Bonus Head for The Joker (exclusive to the Deluxe Edition)
If you go for the standard release of this 33″ tall work of art, you’ll save $265, putting it at $2,505. That’s one expensive extra Joker head.
